Dr. Steve Cobb "Removed" From AD Position at UAA
In a statement released by UAA Chancellor Tom Case at 2:19pm on May 29th, Dr. Steve Cobb has been asked to step down as Athletic Director for the University of Alaska Anchorage.
Chancellor Case released a statement, “Dr. Cobb’s legacy at UAA includes a number of remarkable achievements of which we are all proud. However, it has become clear in recent days that despite his efforts, Steve will not be able to bring all elements of the public together in support of UAA, and that criticism of Steve has become a distraction from the great work that UAA does every day."
Under Dr. Cobb, UAA student-athletes recorded a cumulative GPA of 3.21 this past spring, while sports programs have produced 210 All-Americans, 121 Academic All-Americans, 15 conference titles, and 9 NCAA West Region championships.
